Savings are on the cards for shoppers
A DISCOUNT card has been launched that can be used in independent shops across the district.
More than 1,000 people signed up to the Magpie local scheme on December 12 in Ashford which offers shoppers discounts or free gifts for shopping at certain stores.
Tenterden residents were introduced to the savings card on Saturday (December 19).
The card is already running in Folkestone and other parts of Kent, including Canterbury and Medway.
Regional manager Sharon Bell said: “I imagined that shoppers would be more interested in getting their Christmas shopping done and getting out of the cold on a busy Saturday but the response was amazing.
“The feedback from the vast majority who stopped to talk to us loved the idea saying it was excellent.”
